The Crafter's Way 148- Journey to Quattro

This week's Messenger column is - Journey to Quattro
This month we are to be spoilt by two very different exhibitions, one at Bribie Island and the second at New Farm. Both feature Artists from across the region.
Quattro at the Matthew Flinders Gallery features four artists, Bev Porter, Jackie Gasson, Helen Mitchell and Deborah Plumb, with complimentary artistic talents. Bev’s much sort after functional pottery with crystalline glazes will be on exhibit with Helen’s vibrant and textural mixed media artworks, Jackie’s earthy ‘Soda fired’ pots and as a Quattro first timer, Deborah will be exhibiting her innovative photographs.
The exhibition will be officially opened by Allan Baptist, artist and Curator of the Bribie Island Seaside Museum; on Friday 13th August at 6pm. Pianist Lyn Fry will also perform during the evening. Please RSVP to The Arts Centre on 3408 9288. Entry is free to both the Opening night and the Exhibition.
‘Quattro’ runs from Wednesday 11th August to Sunday 29th August. The Bribie Island Community Arts Centre, 191 Sunderland Drive Banksia Beach. Gallery Open Tues-Sun 10am – 4pm

The second exhibition is ‘Journeys” from the Artists in Redcliffe. Each of the five established and award-winning artists who make up the AIR group, has taken the theme “Journeys” and worked in differing styles and mediums over the last two years.

David May has journeyed through a deeper interpretation of his medium – wood – revealing its hidden character and beauty. Fran Robinson has chosen time and space, new worlds and the traces left behind to form a running thread throughout her stunning textile embroidery art.

You can visit Journeys from 31st August through 12th September at the Graydon Gallery, 29 Merthyr Road, New For more information phone Tricia Reust 3889 4619 or email
